Dreamy-eyed grade-schooler Mason faces upheaval: his devoted, struggling single mom Olivia has decided to move him and older sister Samantha to Houston, just as their long-absent father Mason Sr. returns from Alaska to re-enter their world. Thus begins life's non-stop flux. Yet through a tide of parents and stepparents, girls, teachers and bosses, dangers, yearnings and creative passions, Mason emerges to head down his own road. Filmed over a 12-year period from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood takes a one-of-a-kind trip, at once epic and intimate, through the exhilaration of childhood, the seismic shifts of a modern family and the very passage of time.

In Bloom (M)
Tbilisi, 1992: the newly independent state of Georgia must fend for itself, even as civil war rages in the provinces. For 14 year-old best friends Eka and Natia, their childhood in the run-down but still beautiful city has come to an abrupt halt, as insecurity and fear of what the future might bring holds sway in everyday life. The introverted Eka lives in a book-filled apartment with her dismissive sister and her distracted mother; the precocious Natia, just becoming aware of her appeal to the local boys, lives in the chaotic atmosphere of a cramped apartment with her extended working-class family, dominated by her alcoholic father. But Natia has already attracted the attention not only of handsome Lado, but also local criminal Kote, who is not going to tolerate rivals without a fight. It is the gift by Lado to Natia of a pistol, something to "protect herself with", that fractures the lives of both girls and tests their relationship, as each responds to pressures beyond their control in very different and life-changing ways.
